The Building approvals data relates to the number and value of residential and non-residential building approvals, from information provided by approving authorities. Statistics of building work approved are compiled from:
The data above is sourced from the ABS’ monthly Building Approvals (BAPS) collection which consists of data relating to residential and non-residential building work above certain value limits that have been approved within the reference month. It includes building approvals that are comprised of the following activities:
Residential Buildings: contain one or more dwellings, intended for the provision of long term accommodation. Examples include: detached houses, townhouses, flats, cottages and weekenders. Ancillary outbuildings not containing dwellings built to existing residential buildings, such as garden sheds, gazebos and free standing garages, are treated as residential buildings.
Non-Residential Buildings: where significant non-residential functions are contained in a building, such as shops, hotel/motel rooms, or offices, the building is classified as non-residential. This may, for example, occur where a dwelling is attached to, or enclosed within, a non-residential building
